The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Great little shop packed with lots of quality brands and good deals. Great service from knowledgeable proprietor.

Can't praise this Aladins Cave of outdoors stuff highly enough. Knowledgeable staff, tons of great kit. Returned/ swapped a birthday present here, absolutely no quibbles. Great. Best shop in Chipps.

Love this shop, great bargains when sales are on. Was even able to return my coat a year later when the zip broke, so friendly and helpful

Plenty of choices for out door coats well worth a visit

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Plough Lane Caravan Site

Plough Lane Caravan Site, Kington Langley, Chippenham SN15 5PS, UK – 01249 750146

Beautiful caravan site. Owners lovely and friendly. Dog friendly with dog walk. Quiet and peaceful. Nicely landscaped. Gentle music pipped into the toilet and shower area. Laundry room. Secured entry. Well placed for visiting local attractions and beautiful villages. Nearby supermarket and petrol station. The nearby town of Chippenham is a bustling happy place to shop or have coffee. Many great local pubs for lunches or dinners within a short driving distance. We travel twice a year from Aberdeen because we love our caravan holidays here so much.

Just spent three nights here, it's a great site very welcoming owners/staff. Good sized pitches, excellent facilities which were always very clean. Nice touches having shampoo, shower gel, lotion provided, even some sweets. Good dog walk with poo bags, sanitizer and bin provided next to gate. Some road noise but didn't bother us at all, we had a very restful stay and have come home refreshed, will definitely be returning. We can highly recommend this site
